Edward's story

Meet Edward, a farmer and a father of two from Nyamira; an area of Kenya, popular for growing banana and commercial tea. Edward has been a farmer for 10 years now. He makes money selling milk, eggs, tea, and vegetables from his farm. He also holds a job and engages in other seasonal businesses to make additional income. He is very appreciative of the fact that farming business is profitable. His biggest challenge, however, is limited funds. He needs more funds to expand his operations and seize market opportunities around him. Edward owns one cow at the moment named 'Kerore.' Edward is requesting a loan to construct a cowshed. This will minimize the cows movement looking for pasture, thus channeling more energy to milk production. The cow shed also minimizes the cows exposure to diseases. The additional income Edward will make from introducing a cowshed will go into settling part of the high farming expenses. Your loan will help Edward’s family to make more income and improve the quality of their lives.
